ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia’s spring football practice wound to a close this week, clearing the way for both the spring recruiting season and for a first-ever event in 84-year-old Sanford Stadium.
We’ll get to the recruiting in a minute. The big event on campus Saturday evening is the historic stadium’s first concert, headlined by country music superstars Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan -- a pair of native Georgians who also happen to be huge Bulldogs fans.
Fan interest has been enormous -- more than 60,000 are expected to attend the concert -- so we caught up with Aldean to discuss playing his favorite team’s home stadium and also broke down how Saturday’s concert came to be.
Just a week ago, Georgia held its annual G-Day game in the stadium, with the Black team (featuring the starting defense) rallying to beat the Red (and the starting offense). We took a look at the defense’s impressive performance in the game and also caught up with backup quarterback Hutson Mason to discuss his first game in a year after redshirting last season.
